Spiers takes over media
: I had coffee yesterday with Elizabeth Spiers, the new editor-in-chief of MediaBistro.com.
It’s a great move. You know I’ve been a fan of Elizabeth’s through her Gawker and New York lives. She’s scary-smart and imaginative and, shall we say, discriminating. She will bring a new perspective on media and that will put MediaBistro on the map.
I had lunch a few weeks ago with MediaBistro founder Laurel Touby, right as she was planning to start blogs and hire CableNewser (another smart move). She is smart and aggressive and will make the most of this.
So congrats to both. I look forward to what comes next.
